Ipswich Building Society unveils latest branch investment with renovation of Hadleigh premises
Ipswich Building Society has unveiled the latest investment in its branch network with a complete revamp of its existing premises in Hadleigh. The news comes as the Society celebrates 40 years in the town and follows the opening of two new premises in the Society’s existing branch towns of Ipswich and Woodbridge last year.
The improvements to the branch, which first opened in 1979 and is located on the High Street, have seen the exterior return to its original shade of Suffolk Pink and a complete refurbishment of the interior.
To mark the 40th anniversary, a day of celebrations took place at the new-look branch, with a heritage display showcasing materials from the Society’s extensive archive illustrating the Society’s role in helping provide homes for families in Suffolk and beyond.
Richard Norrington, CEO, Ipswich Building Society, commented: “Hadleigh was the first branch we opened, and joined existing the counter facilities located within our Ipswich head office. Having been based in Ipswich town centre since 1849, this new location gave us the opportunity to grow our membership and extend the reach of our savings and mortgages.
“As a proud, independent mutual we are committed to meeting the needs of our members, retaining a high street presence and providing accessible and welcoming facilities. Therefore, we are delighted to still be a part of the Hadleigh community today.”
